  1. Mr. Fisher, you are not alone in the world of our generation who listens to old (or original as I like to call it) Rock and Roll. Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, the Four Seasons, The Shirelles, Chubby Checker, The Diamonds, (I could go on and on). These are the artists I grew up with. I’ve even danced on stage with Chubby Checker!

  2. I would love to attend this course! Rock and Roll as is music of most generations is so indicative of what is going on in the world at that time. This week Oldies 103 changed its format to top 40. What a shame for those of us who realize Rock truly is rooted in the music of the 1950’s. Time to load up the i-Pod. Long live Rock and Roll!

  3. This is my dream course. I love that people appreciate rock and roll as much as I do. I am 14 and it seems everyone in my generation is listening to crappy music and I just wish they would listen to Hendrix, The Beatles, The Stones, etc

  4. That’s too cool. My wife took a similar course at UCF. I’m a history major with hopes to teach this course one day!
